Has Turkish Airlines Changed? Safety First or Cost Cutting?

This is the latest review on Turkish Airlines flight from Dubai to Istanbul. What has changed onboard Turkish Airlines?

My flight had nearly 300 passengers on it and was operated by a B777-300/ER, registration TC-JJZ. We departed Dubai and were treated to the great city sights. I was not surprised to see that everything provided onboard was sealed and wrapped. The cabin seems thoroughly cleaned. The onboard catering at Turkish Airlines has been changed significantly, breakfast was served in a box in Business Class and in a paper bag in Economy. The rest of the flight was eventless, with a good landing at Istanbul. Enjoy some 360-cockpit action of the pilot flying the B777-300/ER.

I met with Turkish Airlines Chairman of the Board and Executive Committee, İlker Aycı, he provided me with a very engaging and inspirational interview. The interview provides an intriguing insight into Turkish Airlines during the COVID-19 pandemic. We touched on topics such as Government bail outs, layoffs, network, catering and cargo operations.
